Peacemaker Potluck

Ohavi Zedek and College Street Church are having an interfaith potluck together on
 May 23, 6-8 pm at Ohavi Zedek

 

In the last couple of years, there has been a consistent and significant rise in anti-semitic violence in America and around the world. While we have mourned mass shootings and have prayed for healing, most of us have not heard about the interpersonal violence that many of our Jewish sisters and brothers are being forced to reckon with. Part of the evening will involve our listening to OZ folks to hear their experiences so that we might better walk with them. Then, we’ll imagine together small ways in which our communities might work in our neighborhoods to advance peace, walking together to call our community to be its best self. All while sharing a meal!

Sharing a meal can sometimes be complicated, so to make things simple we’re asking that no one bring meat to this meal. Dairy is fine, but please no meat.

Please make space on your calendar for this important event! (Note: the Interfaith Seder has been changed; this event replaces that event, which will be adjusted and changed as a summer activity.)
